I love cakes that only take a few minutes to whip up. Sabrina of Superfluous chose Cranberry Upside-Downer on page 206 of Baking from My Home to Yours for my Tuesdays with Dorie baking group this week....and this cake was a quick one to make.
Even though I've had this recipe bookmarked for more than two years, I opted to make the 'Playing Around Version' using some seasonal fruit that my in-laws grow (Peaches and Raspberries) instead of the Cranberries that the original recipe calls for. I couldn't resist. The peaches are glorious and the raspberries divine! Plus I didn't have to make a trip to a fruit stand or market. I was not disappointed.
This cake was so simple to make and yielded delicious results. It was colorful and beautiful. The peaches were perfectly sweet and lightly caramelized. The cake had the perfect amount of spice to it. I loved how the fruit juices settled into the cake. This was a real winner and a great way for us to finish off our Labor Day BBQ.
You should make this Summery Peach Upside-Down(er) Cake today! You can get the recipe from Sabrina's blog. Be sure to see how the other TWD bakers made it by checking the LYL post.
Next week: Coffee-Break Muffins (I used Perro and Chocolate)
